The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's fraud suit against Goldman Sachs Group Inc. may trigger additional probes of collateralized debt obligations and lead to stricter regulation, analysts and academics said.

After getting dumped by Simon & Schuster for never having worked at Goldman Sachs, John Lefevre, the Twitter comedian behind @GSElevator, has landed a second six-figure advance for his book, Straight to Hell: True Tales of Deviance and Excess in the World of Investment Banking. “His work is amusing, disturbing and at times shocking,” said new publisher Grove Atlantic, which apparently doesn’t care if the gossip is firsthand or matches the author’s brand exactly. No word from the sassy, official @GoldmanSachs account this time.
